Would you like a job where you can make a difference? Do you want to know what it’s like to be excited to go to work? Do you want to benefit your community? Do you want to be outdoors every day? Do you want to make friends that will last a lifetime? If you want to know the feeling of building something that’s going to last…. If you want to be part of a team and push yourself to your limits… This is what we do.
Join us for our 2021 Summer of Service (SOS) program! SOS is a team-based, 12 or 14 week-long program for individuals between the ages 18-24. SOS participants (called Corpsmembers) serve on environmental stewardship projects on public lands throughout the Denver metro area. Corpsmembers will be enrolled in AmeriCorps—a national community service program. This means, get paid biweekly while doing what you love and earn a scholarship at the same time!
What We Do Every Day:
Participate in four hours per week of educational activities on environmental stewardship, civic engagement, healthy living, leadership & career development, and social justice.
This is a temporary position from May 10–August 13, 2021 or May 24-August 13, 2021.
Never had a job outside? Not sure if you like this kind of work? That’s okay! Our goal is to support you with the knowledge and team that you need to be successful. We will provide you with hands-on training related to all projects.
All we ask is that you bring your dedication to hard work, a positive attitude, and a commitment to a year you’ll never forget.
Corpmembers have the choice to serve on a variety of technical crews. MHYC staff will work with you to find the best match!
Sawyer Crew: Corpsmembers operate chainsaws on invasive tree removal and wildland fire mitigation projects. They receive First-Aid/CPR and S-212 Wildland Fire Chainsaws certifications. Some sawyers will have the opportunity to receive pesticide application training. The use of pesticide is common on invasive tree removal projects.
Hand Crew: Corpsmembers receive training in safe and efficient use of hand tools to complete a wide variety of projects. Examples include: trail maintenance and construction, noxious weed removal, pesticide application and other park development projects.
Sheridan Crew: Corpsmembers serve on a hand crew primarily in the City of Sheridan and surrounding communities. Sheridan projects are funded through Great Outdoors Colorado’s Generation Wild – an investment in places, programs and pathways that get kids and their families outside. Residents of Sheridan and surrounding communities are encouraged to apply.
Corpmembers can also choose to serve on an Affinity Crew. Affinity Crews will be assigned to sawyer, hand or pesticide projects!
Gender Spectrum Affinity Crew: Inclusivity is a core value at MHYC, and the Gender Spectrum Affinity Crew embodies this value by creating opportunities for cis women, transgender and gender non-conforming individuals to learn new skills in a safe and supportive environment and reduce historical barriers that have prevented natural resources from being an inclusive field. This crew will be serving as either a Hand or a Sawyer Crew.
Black, Indigenous and People of Color Affinity Crew: MHYC is committed to dismantling the barriers of systemic racism that exist in outdoor spaces and honoring the diverse lived perspectives of individuals from Black, Indigenous, Latinx, Asian and other multi-cultural communities. The BIPOC affinity crew embodies this commitment and strives to reduce historical barriers that have prevented natural resources from being an ethnically and racially diverse field. This crew will be serving as either a Hand or a Sawyer Crew.
